Medical Error / Pharmacy Error & HIPAA Violation?

A CVS employee gave me someone else's prescription. Should that person be contacted? I now know the medication and dose the patient is taking. I also know the Name and address of the person. Is this an HIPAA violation and does she have recourse against the pharmacy or staff?
